A getaway on the cusp of Dallas

Frisco lies just north of Dallas in Texas and was first inhabited by the American pioneers who settled here after traveling by wagon trains along the old Shawnee Trail. Fast forward to today, and the city is booming. From your Frisco vacation rentals, you'll have access to sculpture gardens, sporting events, millions of square feet of retail therapy and family-friendly attractions that will keep the young, and young at heart, busy for the whole vacation. Frisco packs a punch when it comes to outdoor activities, with some of the best cycling trails and communities in Texas.

Warm spring and fall are best

Angling for white bass and crappie

Just minutes away from your Frisco vacation rental is Lake Lewisville, an angler's paradise.
